Happy Friday to all my blog followers.. I have had a few messages from friends in Second Life asking me if I unfriended them on Facebook.. It would take a lot for me to do that, but for the record... Facebook disabled my account at the end of May this year and wanted verifiable identification. No cigar So I decided not to return. Please feel free to share this with others who may be wondering "Where is Rocky?" You could also "Google Me" and you will see that I am in a lot of other places. Have a super weekend!

A few months ago, I decided to finally get a new desktop computer. It was certainly due for an upgrade anyway and with the XP support going away, it pushed me to get a new one sooner.
I had always enjoyed exploring the various windlight settings. I usually stick to using my favorite CalWL. No fancy light settings, its just a nice basic setting for getting around in SL. Now, I get a WOW effect when I want to try and take a super nice photo such as the one in this post.
I am certainly not a pro photographer, but it is nice to see that the average Joe can also take nice photos without any use of Photoshop. By the way, I do have PS,but really have yet to explore the capabilities. In fact, this photo was taken with only the "High" setting and not "Ultra". This particular WL Sky setting is called Fine Day.

Markus has managed to keep the beach going strong with parties and shops and yes you can still just hang out around the camp fire. A few weeks ago the beach moved and I wanted to share with you the new landmark. There have been a few changes, but you will still find the same welcoming space that people have come to know and love. Grab this surf board and go check it out -- http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Gay%20Fun%20Beach/74/38/21

My friend Mikedacook (creator of Mikey's Tees) is offering this awesome T-shirt that I just had to grab. Apparently Facebook feels the same way about me and I have no immediate plans to return. You can find it on the porch if you visit his store. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Boston%20Nightlife/22/98/23

On Wednesday, LL introduced SL Share for their Release Candidate viewer. It seems like a nice option although I personally think the official viewer is already bad to navigate for starters. Not sure if this idea will be well received or if there are plans to introduce it in 3rd party viewers. The plus side would be that SL would get more exposure to the Facebook audience. Will it encourage more to join SL? Time will only tell. I am sharing the link to Inara Pey who blogs extensively about SL and you can follow the comments if you like and make your own informed decision. https://modemworld.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/linden-lab-launches-sl-share-and-a-look-at-the-viewer/

Seasons are quite different here in the San Francisco Bay Area. We do have our "micro climates" This means that you can have cool weather on the bay but the temps heat up as you move inland by about 20 degrees difference. One of the things I do envy about other places is the change in the colors that are shown in pictures like the one here.
The plus side is that in SL we can create any type of environment we choose if we have the space. Beach theme sims seem to be quite popular these days. Sometimes when I am out exploring the mainland, I come across the cold snowing sims and almost shiver. I hope to create this more autumn type environment on my sim. I have a few ideas and I may even post pictures here.
